Most Americans usually fall into two camps… those who LOVE fall and can’t wait for it to begin…
… or those who are holding on to every last beach day they can soak in to stretch out those final summer nights.
But regardless if you’re on team fall or team summer, fall has something for everyone, and here are just a few of our favorite reasons why you should look forward to the months to come.
While COVID-19 may have ruined your favorite fall activities over the past few years – this year things are fully operational!
Whether you prefer picking apples straight from the orchard and making your own apple butter – or simply selecting the perfect pumpkin to decorate your front porch – the options are endless.
If you prefer something more frightening – a corn maze (good luck if you’re claustrophobic) or hayride through an abandoned forest is sure to give you a scare.
Not my cup of tea, but hey, fall has something for everyone!
The Autumn Leaves
There’s nothing more stunning than watching the leaves change colors and light up the blue landscape with shades of burnt orange and red.
Whether you view ‘em by plane, train, or automobile – fall in America is truly like no other.
The good news is the fall foliage peaks at different times so you can plan your entire vacation around hitting your favorite state at just the right time.
Comfy & Cozy
Let’s face it – summer is HOT in most areas of the country.
And while some may embrace the sweaty music festivals and stuffy metro rides around town – fall makes travel just a bit more comfortable.
You can go outside and visit one of our incredible national parks…
… and not worry about dying in the heat.
Cool fall nights are easily managed with a warm sweater or shawl (or hoodie if you’re tailgating).
And what better way to spend the night than sipping on apple cider outdoors by a bonfire!
Soak It Up
From football to bonfires – apple picking to corn mazes – and of course the changing autumn trees – fall is one of the most magical seasons in America.
So get out there sans mask – and visit our beautiful country.
Whether you prefer a somewhat warmer experience down south – or prefer the breathtaking landscape of the Northeast – fall truly has something for everyone.
